Entertainment.com.mt Ltd is very pleased to announce Animae Gospel Choir‘s third national concert, which will be performed at the MCC, Valletta on the 30th and 31st October 2015.
In 2008, Animae had been founded by Eurovision singer Glen Vella, and is now renowned as one of Malta’s top choirs. It consists of 23 singers, including established artists such as Debbie Scerri, Amber Bondin, Pamela Bezzina, Leontine Spiteri and Nadine Axisa.
“It’s already been well over three years since our last national concert,” says Christian Borg, the producer of the Animae Gospel Choir in Concert 2015 and director of Entertainment.com.mt Ltd. “The feedback from our concerts in 2012 was astounding, and we can’t wait for people to see what we’ve put together for them this time round!”
The Animae Gospel Choir has so far performed an acapella arrangement of the Maltese National Anthem, prepared especially for the 40th anniversary celebrations of the Republic. This arrangement was chosen by HE Marie Louise Coleiro Preca to be sung at Westminster Cathedral in London for MaltaDay 2014, and the choir have even travelled to Italy to perform under the direction of internationally acclaimed artists.

“We’ve had a busy schedule, but this is something we been wanting to do for a while,” continues Christian. “The Choir has been rehearsing for over a year now and Pamela Bezzina, who is the Choir’s vocal director and arranger, has come up with an incredibly varied programme that includes gospel classics and popular fan favourites.”
The Animae Gospel Choir in Concert 2015 will also feature a hand-picked choir of up to 70 children, as well as a seven-piece live band with musical arrangements crafted by Kris Spiteri.
“We’ve also come up with our own hashtag, #AGC15, which people can use to comment about the concert. We look forward to interacting with our audiences through it,” Christian concludes.
